Designed with your needs in mind
Designed to meet the demands of the densest data center
environments, the high-performance PowerEdge C1100
offers massive memory and storage support in a spaceefficient 1U form factor for Web 2.0, memcache and Web
analytics environments.
The PowerEdge C1100 supports two Intel® Xeon®
5500/5600 series processors and 18 DDR3 high
performance DIMMs. With its flexible chassis options, the
PowerEdge C1100 is capable of supporting up to 4 x 3.5”
or 10 x 2.5” hot-plug HDDs (SAS/SATA/SSD), in addition to
a true x16 PCI Express slot and two dedicated mezzanine
connectors for SAS and 10Gb Ethernet (GbE) connectivity.
Maximum memory flexibility
The PowerEdge C1100 provides the maximum memory
flexibility possible in a dense, industry standard 1U form
factor. The Intel® Xeon® 5500/5600 series processors
has more than doubled memory capacity over previous
architectures, providing 18 DDR3 DIMM sockets. The large
number of sockets enables support for massive memory
capacity up to 192GB.
More hard drives in 1.7 inches
At only 1U (1.7”) high, the PowerEdge C1100 supports 4 x
3.5” or 10 x 2.5” hot-plug hard drives. Choose from high
capacity SATA, high performance 6Gb SAS, or enterprise
class SLC SSDs to create the optimal storage solution for
your applications.
Save power and increase efficiency
The PowerEdge C1100’s dual redundant or single 650W
high-efficiency power supply options increase energy
efficiency and lower operating costs.
servers have the right combination of what you need and
nothing more.
These are purpose-built servers, designed for HPC, Web
2.0, data analytics, hosting and cloud building. They are
best for rack deployments, large homogenous cloud/
cluster application environments where the software stack
provides primary platform availability and resiliency. The
PowerEdge C server line does not come with features you
don’t need like comprehensive systems management, or
broad enterprise storage.
